Arsenal FC manager hands Premier League title to Chelsea FC
Arsene Wenger not expecting anyone to touch Chelsea in the Premier League title race
November 10th, 2014
Just eleven matches have been played by each team in the top flight this season although Arsene Wenger has seen enough to declare that Chelsea are going to win the title.
The Blues recorded a 2-1 win at Anfield and it means they now sit eight points clear of champions Manchester City after the latter could only manage a 2-2 draw at QPR.
Arsenal stumbled to a 2-1 defeat at Swansea which leaves them twelve points behind Chelsea and Wenger doesn’t expect Jose Mourinho’s club to stumble from this point onwards.
“At the moment Chelsea are on course for 100 points this season,” he said. “If you look at the number of points they have, if they keep that up nobody will catch them, that’s for sure. There doesn’t look to be anybody capable to challenge them at the moment.
“There is no obvious reason. They had a good start, and we have gone through that [in the past], as long as you don’t lose, you don’t question yourself, there is a little bit extra spirit in the team that, when it is tight, gets them through.
“We had a very disappointing week, considering the performances we produced and the end result we got it’s very disappointing. We were 3-0 up against Anderlecht and 1-0 up today and in the end we lose two points against Anderlecht and three points today. I think it’s very disappointing because you have to be capable, once you are 1-0 up and a big team, to win the game.”
